9. I'm tired of being tired of all of that.

This shit has been going on for decades now with no end in sight...and when we have hope for change we do get fooled again.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

11. And that is not the half of it.

Remember a few years back, how General Electric Corporation owed no taxes at all?

How about pharmaceutical companies? And on and on.

19. I'm tired of economics that trickle UP.



It's so weird. We give and give and give to the rich, and contrary to everything we've been told they just ... keep it.


Huh.

27. Good one.

I've heard Bill O'Reilly take the serious side of this argument where he carps about how he "donates money" to the "social programs" he approves of, so he doesn't want his taxes to go to people he presumably doesn't think is deserving enough. He explains this with a surprisingly straight face.

The point is lost to him that everyone has a short list of things we don't want the govt spending our tax money on, but no one in charge cares. He just thinks he's freaking special because he's on TV and he "works hard for his money", as he so snobbishly puts it.

K&R. Thanx for posting.

31. I wonder how much O'Reilly sends to the pentagon?

Because if we got to choose, I don't think I'd pay the taxes that go toward bombing other countries.

32. You've sure got this right

The idiots on welfare are:
1. CEO's and Boards of Directors who continue to 'vote' each other exorbitant salaries while driving their labor further into poverty

2. The corporate managers who consistently put policies in place to maximize profits at the expense of their workers and their customers

3. Those same corporations who are only hiring part time people and not offering any benefits

4. The corporations who steal pensions from workers and fight tooth and nail to break unions

5. The Congress which created tax loopholes that allow over 30 Fortune 500 companies to not pay any income tax

6. The neoconservatives who blindly believe that keeping this nation on a constant war footing is a good idea because then retiring generals can have cushy jobs while our weapons kill innocent people worldwide

7. The neoliberals who blindly believe that we should deregulate, privatize and cut out social spending so we can have a much less restrained version of capitalism

As my parents used to say, these people are burning both ends against the middle, and pretty soon there won't be any middle left. Then, when people rise up in massive social unrest that turns into a horrible, bloody anarchy, what they think they have built will disappear. Hopefully, this monstrous and brutal way of life can be replaced by a world of social and economic justice.

Think we're capable as a species of making this world what it should be?

Nah. We are the only species of which it can be said that if we went extinct, all other life on the planet would actually be better off.
